The former Sony Music boss, who was once married to Mariah Carey, has teamed up with U.S. network chiefs at HBO to executive produce The Latin Explosion, which will detail the "history of Latin music and how it has influenced culture - beyond Latino culture, into American culture", according to the New York Post.

Actor John Leguizamo will serve as the film's narrator, while Marc Anthony, comedian George Lopez, actresses Sofia Vergara and Eva Longoria, and Mottola's current wife, Mexican pop star/actress Thalia, will also share their views on the topic.

The movie is scheduled to debut at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah next year (16) before it premieres on HBO.
